Actually it's not inspiring things I want to talk about, but my cats. They are omnipresent in my life. Even if I wasn't allowed to have one as a child, I still could play with the ones at the farm that belonged to my godmother's parents.
My full first name includes the word "cat" which made it easy to choose the name for my studio. My friends from the US who had problems with pronouncing my first name (no idea why) always called me Cat.
And suddenly the furry kind was in our life and there to stay.
Recently there are five of them in my cat crew:
Gandalf (easy to see where that name came from!). Quiet and shy.
Mephista. Small and lovable.
Greebo. Actually not as monster-like as in this picture, but I like his yellow eyes here ;-)
Ponder. Crazy, wild and extreme in everything he does, may it be fighting or cuddling.
Esme. Almost as extreme as her brother Ponder, but she hasn't got "the howl".
Looking at them inspired me to start my kitty line in a moment of whim, a line of wire crochet earrings and pendants.
Each of my cats has a very different face and so do my crochet kitties, depending on choice of hook, wire, beads for eyes and nose, the ways the ears are put on.
A special thanks goes to Merlin, he is no longer with us. He had the big male cat head that I love best in my pendants.
Thanks for taking the time to stroll through my feline world with me :-)
